The Republic of Korea is going mad!

Production Note
“What kind of world are we living in?” Not an easy question to answer at the threshold of the 21st century. An almost impossible question to answer in Korean society, where random incidents that defy common sense occur on a daily basis. This work is a compilation of Korean independent documentarists' and media activists' take on the many aspects of Korean society. It's a maiden attempt to collect and reassemble all these aspects - some of them from the past and others ongoing - in order to document the present world we live in.
